Need a "working vacation"? Check out Jobbatical - a startup that matches workers with short-term jobs in foreign countries. Among the current opportunities available: an Android developer position in Slovenia, a sales associate job in Indonesia, a marketing specialist gig in Hong Kong, a business development manager job in Germany, and a cloud engineer position in Israel.

A site that matches employers and wandering gig-seekers wants to foster a new way to travel. Like everything else, it helps if you can code.

Our staff knows all of our members by name and profession, and we’re constantly facilitating introductions between Grindists.” Anthony Marinos, Grind Workspaces

"...for you the entrepreneur to be surprised after the fact about what the terms entitle the venture firm to is just bad business – on your part." Valuations don't even tell half the story - this is a MUST read for startup founders who are seeking funding and reviewing term sheets.

Introduction

Kelly Hoey is a speaker, strategist, startup advisor and board member. A connection-maker, networking strategist and expert community builder, Kelly is known for her leadership in building valuable professional networks, understanding the dynamics of engaged communities and the “how” of raising visibility, online and off. 

In 2011, Kelly co-founded Women Innovate Mobile, LLC (WIM), the first startup accelerator focused exclusively on fast-tracking the growth of early-stage mobile technology ventures with gender-diverse founding teams. Kelly continues to invest in as well as advise emerging technology companies.

As managing director of WIM, Kelly was responsible for building the accelerator’s global influencer network of partnerships and connections (over 100,000 online connections, including 88,000 followers on Google+). She was also responsible for leading WIM’s marketing efforts including creating the Google+ Hangout on Air Series #womenwhotech and the “Meet The Innovators” speaker series launched with Apple, Inc. in 2013.

Prior to her entrepreneurial leap, Kelly was immersed in the legal world, initially as a corporate attorney, and ultimately in leadership positions at global law firm White & Case, playing a key role in the development of the firm’s global alumni, professional development and women’s initiatives. In 2009, Kelly became the first president of the women’s business networking group 85 Broads and worked directly with 85 Broads’ CEO/Founder on strategies to re-engage the membership base.
